Monthlyinspo - Round 14: Film Noir  
Hello, dears! How is it going?
I'm realizing this is my first (icon) post of the year, though I have made several graphics for various icontests but I haven't yet posted them here: I hope I'll remember to post them asap!
This is my first entry for monthlyinspo. Man, I love this community, it's so inspiring! But I usually don't have enough time anymore to make lots of icons for communities so it's hard I can manage to do something for this beautiful and inspiring community. I really can't explain why it's so hard to make lots of icons nowadays, I used to make even 40 icons in a day and now I can manage to finish a maximum of 5 graphics per day: it's very strange!
Anyway, going back to this challenge, it was about noir inspirations, so I decided to make not only icons inspired by noir films in techniques, but I chose pictures that reminded me of this genre, like photoshoots and screencaps from noir-ish productions. I tried my best to not make them all in chiaroscuro - it's like my favourite technique EVER - and I'm aware that some of them aren't very good, but I put all my efforts here and, as I said, some of them were really rushed because time is ticking! Anyway, hope you like them and that the overall result isn't that bad!

Finalmente! Non vedevo l'ora di vedere le tue opere: l'atmosfere dark si addicono molto al tuo stile, la 5 e la 7 mi fan venire i brividi, stupendo l'effetto di profondità che riesci a dare ai soggetti...
La 9, 10 11 e 12 sembrano poi locandine di film anni '20, fantastiche: in generale mi piacciono tutte, ma sono innamorata della 7 <3

Sono arrivata a completarle per un soffio: le ho finite giusto oggi! :')

Grazie mille per il tuo bellissimo commento: mi fa sempre piacere leggere i tuoi pareri e sono davvero emozionata e felice che ti siano piaciute tanto! E tante grazie per aver menzionato la 7, adoro la tecnica del chiaroscuro dunque sono veramente contenta che sia la tua preferita! ♥
